Pastor Keith Wilson
was born in Lurgan, Northern Ireland, but spent a considerable amount of time growing up in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Whilst living in Zimbabwe, Keith trained and worked as a freelance illustrator/artist. In his free-time, Keith continues to illustrate and paint, and even worked on the large outdoor christian mural depicting the 'I AMs' of Jesus. This is currently on display on the gable wall of Revelation Christian Resource Centre, River Street, Chippenham
and is clearly visible from the Borough Parade carpark.
He returned to the UK in 1987 to study theology and pastoral studies at Elim Bible College, Nantwich. Following his study, he was posted to back to Northern Ireland, where he was the assistant pastor at Armagh Elim Church. It was whilst in this post, he met Sharon, and fell in love. They married in 1993 and then following a couple of short postings in Northern Ireland, whilst Sharon was completing her degree in Education, they received the call to Chippenham
, Wiltshire. It has been here, in Chippenham
where they have ministered since June 1995.
Shortly after moving to Chippenham
, Keith and Sharon welcomed their two sons and later added a four legged addition to their family, Murphy the crazy, but adorable chocolate labrador! Both boys are now grown up and pursuing their careers.
Keith has a very clear vision of what God has in store for this seemingly smallish, ordinary town in Wiltshire, and in the first instance is desire is to see Chippenham Christian Fellowship (CCF)
become "a house of prayer for all nations" Isaiah 56:7 that reaches out and serves its local community.
